Airtel upgrades 4G network: How does it help?
Simply put if you don’t get why this happens let us explain. Wavelength is indirectly proportional to frequency. So if you have a lower frequency spectrum it would have a higher wavelength. This would mean that the reach of such spectrum would be higher. Though the data rates won’t actually benefit from this as Data is directly proportional to frequency.
More importantly, given the high propagation and reach of the 900 MHz spectrum, Airtel smartphone customers will now enjoy improved 4G availability inside buildings, homes, offices and malls. It will also result in wider availability of Airtel 4G across Delhi NCR, which is one of the largest and most dense telecom markets in the country.
Vani Venkatesh, CEO – Delhi/NCR, Bharti Airtel said,
“We are obsessed with delighting our smartphone customers with quality network experience and high-speed data services. As we introduce LTE-900, we will further step up our indoor network coverage. It will enable high-speed connectivity and HD quality VoLTE calling for our customers in Delhi.”
As part of its network transformation program, Airtel has been deploying network technologies such as pre-5G Massive MIMO and Carrier Aggregation to enhance network capacity over the existing spectrum. The company had recently conducted License Assisted Access (LAA) trial over a LIVE 4G network in Delhi and recorded speeds of 500 Mbps (appx.) over smartphones. We for sure can confirm that Airtel’s network has significantly improved in the past one month in the Delhi NCR region!
Airtel vs other operators: The MHz story!
Airtel uses a mix of 2300 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2100 MHz and 900 MHz spectrum bands to deliver a seamless network experience to customers.
Earlier they didn’t have anything below 1000 MHz. Jio has 850 MHz for long-range connectivity and now with 900 MHz, Airtel has kinda achieved the same level of deep penetration. The telecom wars have just begun and as the next pre-5G wave comes in the competition will intensify even more!
